Small world

So I get a post from martinoffroad saying that he thinks we are neighbors. So what are the odds? We should have bought Lotto tickets. There is ONE house between us. I took it off blog & emailed him. We emailed back forth for a couple of days. Shared names & personal info and such. Well, tonight I walked over & introduced myself. Offroad & his lady welcomed me to their home. We sat on their deck in view of our property drinking sweet tea . We talked about a bunch of you bloggers, politics (asshole Kraus), living in Raytown, and what ever else came up. I can hardly believe we talked for around 2 1/2 hours. I had a great time, and I think they did too. Great people! We're talking about getting together at BB's Lawnside BBQ for food & music some time in the next few weeks. Any one else interested?

I know I have a history of missing these things at the last minute, but I'd love it. Pick a date and I'll help publicize it!

If it wasn't for the mosquitos and having to go to work today, we would have been up well past midnight...we had a wonderful time Spyder...can almost taste BB's now.

Been there a number of times. Would like them to bring back Nigel, a Blues man from Saskatchewan (as in Canada), who knows how to rock with the best of KC musicians.

BigHair: You know we Canadians love to rock not to mention party!

Nigel Mack is now based in Chicago http://www.nigelmack.com but has come out to BB's in concert with John Copowicz of Johnny C & The Automatics, http://www.johnnycandtheautomatics.com/. John also runs JC's, an automotive repair shop here in Raytown on 83rd St. He owns one of BB King's Lucille guitars.
